Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced there for thousands of
years. Although there are records of acupuncture being used hundreds of years
ago in Europe, it was during the second half of the twentieth century it began to
spread rapidly in Western Europe, the United States and Canada. Acupuncture
involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient's skin at specific
points on the body - the needles are inserted to various depths.

According to WHO (World Health Organization) acupuncture is effective for the
treatment of 28 medical conditions, however more recent scientific evidence indi-
cates an effective therapeutic value for many more.

Even though acupuncture is commonly used on its own to treat many medical con-
ditions, there has been increased interest in its use as a combination therapy by
doctors in Western Europe and North America. Even the United States Air Force began
teaching "Battlefield Acupuncture" to physicians deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan
in early 2009, as the use of acupuncture before and during surgery significantly
reduces the level of pain and the amount of potent pain medications needed by patients
after surgery.

Acupuncture has been effectively used for the treatment of back pain, headaches,
migraines, and sports injuries, however modern science has found that it provides
more than just pain relief. Acupuncture is helpful is treating anxiety, insomnia,
digestive problems, menstrual problems, weight control, infertility, and much, much
more.

Cupping and Gua Sha

Cupping is an additional type of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is used as an
alternative method to provide acupressure. Cupping is performed by creating a
vacuum on the patient skin with heat or suction thus providing a way of improving the
flow of energy through the body. Cupping is often used to treat muscular and
respiratory conditions.
